SSL VPN: Convert .ovpn to .apc/.epc for Site-to-Site SSL Tunnels

Please make a tool to conver regular openvpn configuartion files to your apc/epc format. Without such a tool it is impossible to use an astaro as client for existing openvpn server.

        I'd not have thought that this would be missing.
        Loving various aspects of UTM - getting confused by others - but just flabbergasted that this is absent...

        Just tried Sophos for home use, found this feature missing, moving on to something else. You really need to add this in.

        hey Mickey.. if you need any help with that, send me a note: ithelp45-astaro@yahoo.com
        I used StrongSWAN and have updated it several times and entirely replaced all our Astaro/Sophos VM's doing IPSec VPN with this.

        Finally making the switch from sophos to an open-source solution.

        With all the state sponsored interception stuff going on and the fact that sophos cant pull of something as simple as a non-proprietary openvpn client option, there's no reason to keep me using sophos.

        So begins the migration to a better network.

        Crazy that you can't import OpenVPN files into UTM or convert them.
        Please just drop the proprietary format.

        This is insane that so many people have asked for this for over 5 years and yet Sophos hasn't even given a response....I use sophos at my house but it looks like for my work this is a required feature......so I guess we will be looking some where else. Unfortunate because I like Sophos.

        Giving up on Astaro because of this missing feature. Really need to be able to connect a cloud server into our environment with a consistent IP address. Not possible as it stands now.

        Noticed that it isn't specifically a config file conversion. Looks like Astaro is using some sort of helper shared object that likely isn't compatible.

        In any case, it needs to happen. I could convert all my sites to astero, but not my cloud networks that I need to tunnel as well.

        This has been a feature request for over 5 years! How is it that this does not exist at all? How is it that Sophos cannot natively just import the .ovpn files? If this remains in this unresolved state, I will be forced to find another solution.

        In 2015 it is a fundamental feature to have UTMs being OpenVPN clients allowing secured routing of sensitive data!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        One reason am still using pfsense because Sophos doesnt allow openvpn client. I would be keen to know why does it compete with any other producs sophos offers.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Sophos-this is a must-have feature! I agree with what others have said: at least respond to all these comments and votes and either add the feature, or at least start a discussion on why it isn't implemented. If there are implications we are unaware of, please share that with us.

        Huge requirement for some offices, many times we can only replace 1 or 2 firewalls a year or at a time. This creates a huge headache for other locations that would need to connect back that are currently using OpenVPN tunnels. This would allow us to offer Sophos in more enviroments and increase deployment speed. The basics are there, would probably could even install a package on the UTM itself via root.. - DigiGround LLC, Gold Partner Requesting.

        i cant believe this is still not implemented it has been over 5 years now since we have asked for such a simple request. ovpn is apart of the distro why is it so hard to make a tool to give us back what is already inside of the system?
